Q&A - Joining
Rainbow Has Room for YOU!
Growing up can be tough on young girls. Somewhere between the pressures of fitting in, doing well in school, and being a good daughter, it’s easy for a young mind to mix up a few priorities. Girls can get lost and forget that the important things in life can’t be found in a store, a hair salon, or on the most popular list at school.
Being a member of Rainbow gives girls the power of knowledge — to know right from wrong and to be able make decisions by using their head and their heart instead of peer pressure. Rainbow Girls will experience the joy of giving through volunteering in their community or on a nationwide assignment. Most importantly, the confidence and leadership skills taught through Rainbow will continue to open doors for each girl through college and her career.
Joining Is Easy! Rainbow welcomes girls between the ages of 11 and 20, regardless of their race or religious background. This diversity truly brings people together and makes us strong!
Step 1 Locate an Assembly near you (click here to find an assembly). A Rainbow Girl representative will contact you and send you an Application for membership.
Step 2 Complete and turn in the Application that will ask for basic information.
Step 3 A small group from the Assembly will visit you at home. This informal get-together will give you and your family a good idea of what to expect in joining Rainbow.
Step 4 Much like a college sorority, once your Application is accepted the Assembly will conduct an actual ballot and vote you into their group.
Step 5 Lastly, new members and their families participate in an Initiation Ceremony. This presentation solidifies a member’s obligation to live a good life and to do right. This ceremony is by far one of the most memorable experiences for new members.
